Disability Grievance Procedure

If a student believes that stated procedures have not been followed properly, a request for an accommodation has not been approved, an approved accommodation has not been implemented, or that any action has been improperly directed against her because of a disability or perception of a disability, the student may attempt to resolve the matter informally.

To resolve the matter informally, the student should first meet with Rick Muthiah, Director of Disability Services. If the student has concerns about meeting with the director, she can meet with the Vice President of Student Life, who attempts to resolve the matter.

In cases where the nature of suitable adjustments or modifications has been determined but the faculty member nonetheless fails to provide them or where there is some other form of complaint against a faculty member, the matter should be referred to the Vice President of Student Life who, in turn, should seek an informal or, where necessary, formal resolution. If the grievance is against a staff member, the student begins this process by meeting with the Director of Disability Services.
